This course is for year 12 students from state-funded schools, academies and colleges who are interested in applying for places at Oxford University, Imperial College, Durham University, University of Bath, University of Manchester and Warwick University to study Mathematics, or for students who wish to improve their mathematical problem solving skills in preparation for a university course. Please note that the course is not suitable for GCSE students.
Students applying for places to study Mathematics or Computer Science courses (including joint honours) at Oxford University and any Mathematics undergraduate course at Imperial College, London will be required to sit the Mathematics Admission Test (MAT) as one part of the admissions process. Students applying for Mathematics at Warwick University will generally be required to sit an admissions test (MAT, TMUA or STEP), and several other universities give precedence and/or lower offers to students who are successful in such tests.
This course is designed to prepare students for the way they will have to think to achieve success in the MAT, TMUA and other problem-solving mathematics examinations by developing their mathematical thinking and problem solving skills.
The course consists of three face to face study days, three summer assignments and four online follow-up sessions.
|Curriculum focus:||University admissions tests, A level Mathematics|
|Mathematical focus:||Pure, Problem Solving|
|Course length:||3 day(s)|
Who will benefit from attending?
Any student who wishes to apply for a university that requires or accepts the MAT or TMUA admissions tests will benefit from attending. The course also provides a good base for preparing for the STEP examinations.
